Covert Geekery

Recently, my office changed the dress code to limit graphic tees throughout the week. This isn’t a bad thing, of course; we’re a professional office with clients who pop in all the time, so we need to look professional. Pretty important stuff. But how am I supposed to profess my love of Sailor Moon without […]

Book Review: The Martian by Andy Weir

I’ve said before that I’ll be doing Book Reviews but I’ve also decided I’d only do Book Reviews of books I really liked. Frankenstein was not even close, To The Lighthouse was ok and might be brought up with a feminist post later but it wasn’t a recommendation really. The Martian, though, was amazing. Summary: […]

Typographic Art in Storytelling

Concrete Poetry – A form of poetry where the typographical layout and placement is important to the meaning. While the term may be coined in the 1950s, Concrete Poetry goes back as far as Greek Alexandria. In 2001, I read House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski, which uses elements of Concrete Poetry to add […]

Frozen and Mental Illness

I’m aware it’s been a couple years since this movie came out but I feel like I’m explaining this to too many people and it would just be easier to have an article I can give them. Okay, so Frozen! I love that movie and it is wonderful and I sing along to the songs […]

Making References

As a fangirl and an avid user of the internet, I’ve come to understand something very important: Our language has evolved to include memes. The internet speaks in a language of text and pictures where it can be assumed that a large portion of your audience understands what you’re talking about. Visual Media like Comics […]

Time For Some Awesome Things

A lot has gone on this week in the nerdy parts of the internet. Unfortunately, a lot of that is related to both the Games and Comics industry being unsafe spaces for the marginalized. I think it’s time for some awesome things, cause it can’t all be awful things. First off, Amanda Palmer and Neil […]

A Career in Two Parts

Lately, I’ve stopped thinking of my writing career and my web development career as two different careers. I’m starting to think of them as a single career with two different parts that are often intertwined. Every website I build has little bits of information built in for me to use. I know more about eye […]

Media I’m Enjoying Lately

It’s time for a recommendation post! Vices & Virtues – Panic! At The Disco I know I’m about three years late to the party on this one, but maybe other folks missed this amazing album too. They only had one song that got any playtime on the radio. It’s available on Spotify so check it […]

New Website Design

I’m sure it’s been noticed that my site is changing. Well, I thought I’d take a few minutes to go over the process here and the reasons for the changes. It’s like a case study but more shoujo! First off, the Name. I realized that no one googles Sheena Bandy unless they already know about […]

Mental Health and Writing

Last weekend, my mom asked me if I’m putting pressure on myself to write when I don’t want to. I tried to explain to her why I make myself write blog posts and drabbles throughout the week and I didn’t do a very good job of it. Well, I came up with a better answer […]
